Seven must be the lucky number this time around. We have two picks from the 1984 supplemental draft and a whole bunch of late round picks.
|Name||Position||College||Spot Drafted||Years Played||Jersey Number|
|Nate Davis||QB||Ball Sate||171st||2009--||7|
|Ken Dorsey||QB||Miami (Fla.)||241st||2003-2005||7|
|Todd Santos||QB||San Diego State||274th||1988||7|
|Shane Andrus||Kicker||Murray State||Undrafted||2009||9|
Mark Stevens took full advantage of the 1987 strike to become one of the first black QBs to play in the NFL, even if it was only for a couple of games.
There's a caveat to Zendejas' drafting position. He was drafted in the disperal draft which happened after the USFL disbanded. Interestingly enough there was another Zendejas who played for the Cowboys and was drafted in 1986. He was also a kicker--with a name like that they have to be releated.
Steve Young was the 1st overall pick in the 1984 supplemental draft. Interestingly enough there was another Steve Young drafted by the Buccaneers in 1976, although he was a tackle out of Colorado.
Representing the Number 7: Nate Davis. Just because he's a fan favorite, not because I have any particular liking for him.
Representing the Number 8: Steve Young. This was easy and not just because he's the only Niner to have worn that number (weird huh?)
Representing the Number 9: Jim Asmus. Just for some old-time player love here.
